Medical Genetics Residency Programs

Welcome to Wayne State University (WSU)/ Detroit Medical Center (DMC), School of Medicine’s Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics (CMMG) Residencies Website. As more medical discoveries are made in the field of genetics, it is clear that many illnesses have an underlying genetic cause. This means that there is a critical need for clinicians who specialize in all areas of medical genetics so that patients can receive state-of-the-art medical care to manage their health.

Resident/fellow activities in medical genetics are coordinated through CMMG. WSU/DMC programs offer opportunities to help prepare the trainee to provide medical care to patients of all ages, including patients with birth defects, metabolic diseases, at-risk pregnancies, and a family history of inherited conditions.
